Seven fish biologists working in Southern Oregon filed a scientific misconduct complaint yesterday. They say the Bureau of Reclamation plans to disband their team because their studies were unpopular.
Four different federal agencies are all working to save threatened salmon and endangered suckerfish that live in the Klamath river and Klamath lake.
Biologists with the Bureau of Reclamation say some of their fish studies had unusual results.
In one example, they found a population of endangered suckerfish in a part of the river other agencies considered a dead zone.
